Division Director in the Division of Functional Genomics in the Center for Human Molecular Genetics at the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics. His lab studies the functional genomics of hereditary diseases and redox in epigenetic regulation. Wang's work focuses on the regulation of epigenome by vitamin C and the chromosome 10q26 locus in age-related macular degeneration. He is also an Associate Professor in the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics.
